shocker in the senate was the announcement by south carolina republican jim demint. listen to what he told wolf blitzer. >> after this last election, it's apparent that we need to do more as conservatives to convince americans that our ideas and our policies are going to make their lives better. this will give me the opportunity to help take our case to the american people and to translate our policies into real ideas. >> so you think you could be more influential within the conservative movement as the leader of the heritage foundation as opposed to a united states senator? >> there's no question about it. >> maria, to you first. can he really do more for the republican party from outside the senate? >> well, it seems to me that he didn't think he was doing -- that he wasn't really making that much of a difference in the senate. i mean, the republicans are in the minority there. and frankly, he doesn't have a tremendous legislative record. he doesn't have any big legislative accomplishments. and what he is known for is messaging. what he is known for is for being a strong spokesperson. so

, thank you. one of the leading conservatives on capitol hill is stepping down. republican senator jim demint of south carolina is leaving to headline the heritage foundation, a conservative think tank. the announcement was a surprise so we asked congressional correspondent nancy cordes to look into it for us. flan see. >> reporter: scott, can jim demint is a hero to many on the right, and many here on capitol hill were stunned today because he's in the middle of his second term. demint say staunch, small-government conservative who is known for block democratic and many republican initiatives. that made him a start tea party movement and a powerful fund-raiser for tea party candidates. demint was one of the earliest backers of florida senator marco rubio. but demint has also angered party leaders by supporting far right candidates who lost their general elections. >> i'm not a witch. >> reporter: candidated like christine o'donnell of delaware, who in 2010, aired an ad assuring voters she was not a witch. demint says he can be a more effective communicator of conservative ideas by leading a

today. jim demint spoke out against boehner's proposal to the president. >> republicans should not be conceding that the federal government needs more money, negotiating with ourselves, and treating the president's proposal like it's serious. >> very critical of john boehner. and demint's press release aimed squarely at john boehner. $800 billion tax hike will destroy jobs, allow washington to spend more. as you all know, john boehner put an $800 billion tax hike as a center of his proposal. so john boehner got rejected from the white house, which wants another $800 billion on top of that in tax hikes and then rejected by the right wing of his own party which wants absolutely no tax hikes at all. so unlike harry reid, i actually feel genuine sympathy for john boehner. so kudos, speaker, for showing deserters or desenters who is boss. boehner stripped house members who opposed key committee assignments today. and earlier i spoke with one republican leader in the house who himself has been out of step with boehner in recent days. deputy whip congressman tom cole of oklahoma. he s
